The movie The Wolf of Wall Street is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, a man whose story had already inspired one movie, Boiler Room. Martin Scorsese’s film is a much better movie, and offers more insight into a man for whom there was never enough. Never enough money. Never enough sex. Never enough drugs. Jordan Belfort should be made the poster boy for the era of conspicuous consumption that went on in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
